Hiking a national trail next month

I am walking 143 km through Wiltshire and Oxfordshire. I have never taken any type of holiday on my own before so it feels like a bit of a big thing for me. I should be able to finish it within 2 weeks and I have just booked the train tickets and time off work for it.


That sounds cool :sunglasses:. You’ll get good exercise hiking that far.

So about 20 km a day?? Where will you sleep?

A bit less than that it is more like 14 a day or something. I will be staying in hotels and hostels. I was going to go camping but there is only 2 campsites along the way so I thought I would save the weight and just stick to hotels. The thing is in England you cant wild camp so that is out of the question. I would love to do that abroad though it sounds like a lot of fun.

That will be so good for your soul. I loved hiking before I became afraid to leave the house, and I miss it dearly. I hope you take in all you can. Enjoy!

Yeah come to the USA hike the Appalachian trail :sunglasses:


That is pretty long from what I am remember. I would probably enjoy it, but I think I would definitely have to build up my fitness before attempting that.

Just checked 2,190 miles.

Yeah the whole thing is a bit much but some people do it. Some people do half or less. It goes through most of the eastern seaboard in the USA.

Hiking abroad is definitely on my bucket list though.
